TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Credicorp as a hold. Among the primary strengths of the company is its expanding profit margins over time. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and premium valuation.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The gross profit margin for CREDICORP LTD is rather high; currently it is at 68.60%. Regardless of BAP's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, BAP's net profit margin of 15.51% compares favorably to the industry average.
  • BAP, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 12.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 15.9%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • CREDICORP LTD's earnings per share declined by 24.6% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, CREDICORP LTD reported lower earnings of $7.11 versus $9.90 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($10.92 versus $7.11).
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed against the S&P 500 and did not exceed that of the Commercial Banks industry. The net income has decreased by 24.3% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $200.19 million to $151.64 million.
  • Reflecting the weaknesses we have cited, including the decline in the company's earnings per share, BAP has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 14.58% from its price level of one year ago. Looking ahead, we do not see anything in this company's numbers that would change the one-year trend. It was down over the last twelve months; and it could be down again in the next twelve. Naturally, a bull or bear market could sway the movement of this stock.
